Barbara J. Miller, one of those progressive sorts in Eagan, got an LTE in the New York Times today! Click here and scroll down, she’s the one in there between Bly & Keillor.

Here it is:

To the Editor:

David Brooks poses this challenge: “Liberals who think this disaster is going to set off a progressive revival need to explain how a comprehensive governmental failure is going to restore America’s faith in big government.”

Restore faith in big government? Mr. Brooks, it is only in the years since George W. Bush assumed the presidency that faith in our government has plummeted. Americans do not trust him. Americans do not trust his merry band. Americans do not trust their motives or their strategies, at home or abroad.

And now this administration has failed Americans yet again. Our federal government is only as effective and competent as its governors. Cause and effect. The big question is whether there will be anything salvageable by 2008.
